Transforming an existing building is my favorite challenge.  All my favorite cards are at play: to respect and elevate the old, to rethink spaces and materials and blend them into a harmonious and future-proof unit.

Gardenhouse Bagatelle

From the beginning, we knew that the involvement of young Hungarian designers would be one of key things that would give the place personality.


An imaginative, refreshing splash of creativity on the popular bike path circling Lake Balaton: a hybrid bike shop-service-restaurant-café-accommodation. Loose and elegant at the same time; quality kitchen, fine design.


“The Bagatelle Gardenhouse may just become Budapest's new favorite. It may not be huge, but its value is tremendous. It's not a show-off, but rather waits patiently to share itself with others.”
